More details

The pressure to be perfect pervades our culture. It’s exhausting, stress inducing, can affect mental health and stops us from being our best selves.

This workshop helps us spot perfectionist tendencies, gives an honest appraisal of the pitfalls and sets out practical tools to help us all manage.

The tools include teaching self-awareness, a growth mindset and learning to embrace mistakes. These strategies help children to be courageous, confident and authentic versions of themselves.
